Those of you that live in the Dallas Fort Worth area might have caught the clip. Isn’t he so cute???? Well, these empty shelves were after the third restocking of the day, apparently.

We’ve taste tested for all a’y’all out there, and we’re happy to report it’s just as delicious and as you can tell, above, made us feel great. Bonus: I had a R44DCL, too.
That’s all I’ve got.
p.s. This is my bangs after growing out for two weeks!
p.p.s. Hell to Pay is coming along nicely.
